DeKalb school choice applications delayed

DeKalbOpen enrollment for school choice in DeKalb County is open now — but only on paper. This includes applications for the county’s high achiever magnet schools for the 2015-16 school year.

Online registration was scheduled to begin yesterday, but because of technical problems, it’s been pushed back to Feb. 10 — contingent on the IT department completing the integration of the old e-portal system with the newer Infinite Campus system. To make up for the delay, the county has extended the application period an additional week, to Feb. 27.

Between now and Feb. 10, you can submit a paper application for a school outside your attendance zone, although when I spoke with the school choice office yesterday, they seemed to favor waiting until next week and using the online system.

In the meantime, if you don’t have an Infinite Campus account yet, get one. If all goes as planned, your Infinite Campus account information will serve as your login for the e-portal, where registration for school choice will be hosted.

The school system will hold lotteries in March and April to assign the available spaces.
